    You can try this:

    apt-get install --reinstall clamav

    Fedora core 10 clamav update to 0.96

    the solution of the problem is simple in debian, with a simple apt-install .... the problem is in Fedora and Centos ...
    Fedora 10 and I have no repositories for ClamAV, and I have trouble compiling its source code. someone who can contribute or have a link that explains how to do it under the platform I'm using

    the momentary and incorrect solution was to delete the file /var/lib/clamav/daily.cld and block the updating of antivirus ... runs very well so the mail, but it is not correct.
    I'm using FC10 repeat with ISPConfig

    Thanks Till, I though I was almost there, but it returned this:

    It seems it picked up version 95.3 again. I have all other repos commented out.

    0.95.3 is the correct new version, so everything has been updated fine. 0.95.3 is the latest available version from debian volatile and it fixes this problem as there are up to date antivirus databases available for this release from the clamav project.

    Of course I've the same problem...
    According with the suggestion of Till, I had a look at this link:

    The problem is that when I'll try to upgrade clamav, the server is trying to upgrade all the packages that needs to be upgraded... and at the moment I would like to upgrade just the clamav stuff... (I've for example a master-master replication and I'm quite scare to upgrade mysql...)

    There is a way to do it?
    I tried this command:
    apt-get -u upgrade clamav
    but it doesn't work...

    Just add the volatile repository to sources.list
    and run
    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade or apt-get upgrade.

    All this work i dont know where are you writing the commands but if you got permissions and a internet line is all that you need. (Lenny)

    Please update all parts of your system, mysql inclusive.

    Ok I've upgrade the system and now clamav seems to be ok.
    Anyway I can see now that the /var folder is going out of space...
    /dev/sda6	xfs	4.7G	4.2G	514M	90%	/var
    How is possible?

    How can I solve it?

    Hi to everybody.
    I'm managing 2 mailserver with ISPConfig and the configuration of both is exatly the same.
    As I said before, I've upgrade the systems, so that I don't have anymore all the email with viruses in the queue.

    In one server everything is working perfect, in the other I've notice that in Mail-err Log I can still read this error message:
    May 18 08:29:46 srv3 amavis[15714]: (15714-06) (!!)ClamAV-clamd av-scanner FAILED: run_av error: Too many retries to talk to /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl (Can't connect to UNIX socket /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl: No such file or directory) at (eval 100) line 309.
    So I tried to restart the clamav-daemon and I've got this error:
    srv3:/var/run/clamav# /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon restart
    Stopping ClamAV daemon: clamd.
    Starting ClamAV daemon: clamd LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************

    LibClamAV Error: cli_hex2str(): Malformed hexstring: This ClamAV version has reached End of Life! Please upgrade to version 0.95 or later. For more information see and (length: 169)

    LibClamAV Error: cli_tgzload: Can't load daily.ndb
    LibClamAV Error: Can't load /var/lib/clamav/daily.cld: Malformed database
    ERROR: Malformed database
    How is possible that two twin servers with the same configurations have such a different behaviour?
    It's look like the system doesn't update the clamav-daemon...isn't it?

    Hi Till,
    thanks for your answer.

    It was my bad... the new repository in one server was commented out...

    Thanks a lot
